Blairstown NJ man charged in killing of bear, deer

BLAIRSTOWN -- A Blairstown man faces several criminal and conservation law charges after he admitted to shooting a bear and a deer with a crossbow, state Department of Environmental Protection officials said.

Kevin Young, 25, who lives on Cedarville Road, is being held in the Warren County Correctional Center in lieu of $50,000 bail following his arrest July 13.

DEP spokesman Larry Hajna said conservation officers received a tip on the morning of July 12 that a black bear had been illegally shot and killed the previous evening, prompting officers and Blairstown police to search woods in the Skunktown area of the township.

The officers reported they found the bear's carcass hidden in some underbrush and followed a trail of blood to a residence on Cedarville Road. At the residence officers encountered Young, who, Hanja said, admitted he shot the bear and also shot a deer earlier that day.

He consented to a search of his apartment and officers said they found a 12-guage automatic shotgun, a pellet gun, a compound bow and a crossbow, which Young said was used to kill the bear.

Hanja said he could not go into what Young gave as reasons for shooting the deer and bear, as that is evidence in the case.

Young was arrested on six counts of illegal possession of a weapon since, as a felon, state law prohibits him from owning or using any weapon. Conservation officers also cited him on nine violations of conservation laws because of the killing of the bear and deer.

held in Jail with $50,000 bail. Sounds like PA should take a note on how to handle poachers(allegedly).

More on the felony charges rather than the Game Law violations I would bet.

That would be a good bet...$50K bail sounds impressive but unless specified otherwise he would only have to post 10%.
Still a good job by law enforcement.

Re: Blairstown NJ man charged in killing of bear, deer

I was thinking the same thing. The 50K bail is for the 6 counts of illegal weapons. He is a prior felon. Can't even own a bow.

Just shows that some people are incapable of learning. Now he'll have plenty of time to think about it, but I doubt even that will convince him to go straight.....
